The most sophisticated Porsche sportscar of 1980s

Now, We're back to Porsche again. The Porsche 918 Spyder might be the car with the best technological achievements ever built by Porsche to date. Even so, long before the 918 Spyder was invented, this German manufacturer apparently had created a supercar concept that also carried the high technology of its day.
1986 Porshe 959 Komfort said to be the most advanced car of the 1980s. (Picture from: RMSothebys)
The car is a Porsche 959, and it was known as one of the high-tech supercars that were successfully created by Porsche AG in 1986. The car was originally named Gruppe B because it was planned to be used as a racing car at the Group B rally, and began construction in 1981. However, when the prototype was completed in 1987, it turned out that the Group B rally had been disbanded in 1986.

This car was used for research before it was decided to be produced. The Stuttgart-based premium car manufacturer produced this supercar model in a limited number, which was only 337 units (including 37 prototypes and preproduction models) between 1986 and 1989.

This car is produced in two versions, namely Sport and Komfort, where the Sport version is a car made specifically for racing purposes while the Komfort is the legal road version. Because of the high demand for this car, in 1992 and 1993, Porsche made eight more 959 cars, which were built from parts in Zuffenhausen.
1986 Porshe 959 Komfort is capable of accelerating from rest to a speed of 100 kph in 3.7 seconds, while the maximum speed achieved was 336 kph. (Picture from: RMSothebys)
The Porsche 959 is equipped with a 2,847 cc twin-turbocharged V6 engine coupled with a 6-speed manual transmission system. The machine is capable of spewing power output of up to 530 horsepower. Armed with its wild engine power, the Porsche 959 is capable of accelerating from rest to a speed of 100 kph in 3.7 seconds, while the maximum speed achieved was 336 kph. A pretty impressive performance, isn't?   

As for achievements, this car is very well known in the racing world because it is probably the only sports car that has ever won the Dakar Rally and 24 Hours of Le Mans. It was also recorded as the holder of the highest top speed record (197 mph) before being taken over by the Ferrari F40.
This supercar is reportedly never officially imported into the United States or other countries so that it is a fairly rare car. The difficulty of finding the existence of this sophisticated supercar also had contributed to making the selling prices of the used Porsche 959 cars in exorbitant. *** [EKA[15032020] | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | RM SOTHEBYS | MOTOR1 | AUTOEVOLUTION ]

Another Italian sports coupé dreams?

When we saw the first time, the figure of the concept car that appeared in this striking yellow color, arose the curiosity of what this car really was. Because, when viewed a glance from the front like a fusion of the McLaren 570S and Lamborghini Huracan, while from the side like the Ford SuperGT. After we explore further on the internet, it turns out this car is a concept car called the Model 5 Genesi
Model 5 Genesi sports coupé concept made its debut at the 2016 del Salone dell'Auto di Torino - Parco Valentino. (Picture from: RaceDepartement)
The concept car is the work of an Italian company named Model 5. Might be you feel peculiar when hear the name of this Italian startup company. Actually, the company already active in the world's of design and industrial design since 2013.

The existence of the company's headquarters in Orbassano also said to help fill the "cultural distance" between the two cities considered one of the capitals of the automotive industry and the other is the homeland of Italian design.

And those bright yellow concept car was created by the collaboration of two Model 5 subsidiary companies namely the SM Engineering (Carlo Segretario and Enzo Mileo), and the other one named the made | studio Milano (Emiliano Palma, Marco Tonin and Daniele Cremona).

The Model 5 Genesi concept car was developed in over a year of work and has involved more than fifteen designers, modelers, designers and physical modelers. The company also said, that the development of this concept car also involves other parties who are considered competent, such as Pirelli, AM Costruzione Modelli, Freeland.car, Scorpion Engineering and Nuova Vermst.

Physically the Genesi Model 5 has a dimension of about 4,525 mm in length then a width of 2,020 mm and a height of about 1,280 m. Meanwhile the wheelbase is around 2,650 mm. The car would be powerful and light (with an estimated weight of 1,250 kg).

Furthermore the two-seater sports coupé uses an engine placed in the middle and adopted all-wheel drive system. Those mentioned engine is a V10 engine with a capacity of 5.2 liters which is said to be capable of producing power up to 600 hp. Those engine power channelled through a seven-speed LDF dual-clutch transmission system so can make the car run on the streets fastly.

The company also said for the driving comfort and safety in the Genesi concept car, they also pinned double-wishbone suspensions in the front and rear. For the legs, this car uses a set of 20-inch 10-spoke wheels and wrapped with Pirelli tires 265/35 R20 in the front and 305/30 R20 rear. Not to forget, they also installed the carbon-ceramic brakes on each wheels to reduce or stop the speed of this car.
But when it was first shown at the 2016 Turin Motor Show (2016 del Salone dell'Auto di Torino - Parco Valentino) not exactly in the shape we expected, but a gorgeous one even so. The prototype on display is in fact a 1:1 mockup. With that in mind, apart from the dimensions and the tires, every other technical specification is a wish of what the supercar could be, if it ever gets produced.

Probably we will never see one of Model 5 Genesi on the streets, but, as a 1:1 business card, we must say that the mockup makes a tremendous case for presenting the work of Model 5. *** [EKA[30112018] | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MODEL 5 | MADE STUDIO | MOTOR1 | MOTORCHASE | AUTODESIGNMAGAZINE | AUTOBLOG | RACEDEPARTEMENT]

A restomod car to tribute the heydays of the Lancia 037 rally car

~One Great Car~ It is commonplace in making a car model that will be able to attract buyers' interest, sometimes car makers use a way by evoking memories of the glory days of a legendary car in a famous racing event in the past, then took and pinned some of those legendary car's iconic design elements into their production cars.
The Kimera EVO37 is built by Kimera Automobili as much as 37 unit to commemorate the glory of the legendary Italian rally car, the Lancia Rally 037. (Picture from: AutoExpress)
Apparently this is what an automotive firm based in Cuneo, Italy called Kimera Automobili did, when making a sportscar named the Kimera EVO37, that's a restomod car made to commemorate the glory of the legendary Italian rally car, the Lancia Rally 037.
The Lancia Rally  037 is a mid-engine sports rally car specially built by Lancia in the early 1980s to compete in the FIA Group B World Rally Championship. (Picture from: Wikipedia)
For your info, the Lancia 037 is a mid-engine sports rally car specially built by Lancia in the early 1980s to compete in the FIA Group B World Rally Championship. Despite fighting in tight competition against the Four-Wheel Drive Audi Quattro and many other formidable sports rally cars, the car managed to bring the Lancia as the winner of the manufacturers' world championship in the 1983 season, and noted itself as the last rear-wheel drive car to win the WRC.
The Kimera EVO37 posed along with its inspiration source, the Lancia 037 Stradale.. (Picture from: Id.Motor1)
Well through the Kimera EVO37, the automaker wants to reintepreted the Lancia Group B's rear-wheel drive rally car in a modern design touches. By design, this Kimera-made car still follows the design lines of the Lancia 037 complete with its legendary four eyes (now with the LED lights). However, the car bodywork no longer uses fiberglass but uses carbon fiber and Kevlar.

Then the bodywork is mounted on top of the chassis made by Kimera based on the Lancia Beta Montecarlo center chassis with the addition of tubular space frames at the front and rear. Then for the drivetrain, Kimera Automobili collaborated with Claudio Lombardi and Italtecnica to reengineer the Lampredi Lancia 037 engine, where the 2,150 cc four-cylinder engine is not only driven by a supercharger, but also with a turbocharger.
The Kimera EVO37 posed along with its inspiration source, Lancia 037 Stradale, Lancia Delta S4 Stradale, dan Lancia Delta HF Integrale. (Picture from: Id.Motor1)
As the result, the twin-charger engine is claimed to be capable of producing a peak power of 505 hp and a maximum torque of 550 Nm. Just like the Lancia 037, the engine transmits power to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. To support the ferocity of these bursts of power, the Kimera EVO37 has Brembo brakes with iron or carbon ceramic discs.
As for the legs, there are four Pirelli's run-flat tires that wrap specially designed 19-inches cast wheels and are supported by Öhlins' suspension system is ready to absorb shocks from the road contours. The Italian automaker plans to produce and sell 37 units of the Kimera EVO37 for 480,000 or around Rp. 8.33 billion. Are You ready for this EVO37? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | KIMERA AUTOMOBILI | ID.MOTOR1 | AUTOEXPRESS | WIKIPEDIA ]

The future Vespa La Speciale concept capable to be transformed into a segway

~Sempre Una Vespa~ It's been a long time, we don't write the content that talks about the scooters. And now it feels like it's time for us to re-present something about today's scooter designs (although only in terms of ideas and concepts) related to current trends. The following is one of the scooter concepts (here's no. 3 of 3 concepts) that we have prepared where the whole design are inspired by the Italian scooter legend, Piaggio Vespa.
The Vespa La Speciale Concept is complied as a disertation of three Italian students of the Istituto d'Arte Applicata e Design (IAAD) in Turin. (Picture from: Behance.net)
Did you know that apart from those who know how to earn a trust like the designers who officially work for the company, there are literally thousands of others struggling to stand out? And often the latter is much better than the former. For example in the case of the following three Italian students who do their job far beyond what is called a "professional" after You seen their designed scooter as follow;
Here are the three Italian students of the Istituto d'Arte Applicata e Design (IAAD), namely Federico Bernardi, Mattia La Coppola and Andrea Ortile. (Picture from: Behance.net)
As quoted from ScooterNet, it is said that there are three Italian students, namely Federico Bernardi, Mattia La Coppola and Andrea Ortile, who are studying in the major of the industrial design at the Istituto d'Arte Applicata e Design (IAAD), a Turin-based private university of design. And when they were about to finish their studies, they then compiled a dissertation on the future Vespa scooter design called Vespa La Speciale for its 70th birthday (meaning 5 years ago, because today, in 2021 Vespa celebrates the 75th anniversary).
The Vespa La Speciale Concept is created by combining past traditions and future innovations without forgetting the values of originallity as well as reinterpretated of globally thinking without time limit. (Picture from: Behance.net)
After first they putting the idea on a piece of paper, and immediately set up the parameters that would characterize of the scooter design, such as usability, Italian, social, youth, traditional, smart, simple, cool, fashionable, etc.
The Vespa La Speciale Concept was developed as an electric-powered vehicle to support the needs of the new generation. (Picture from: Behance.net)
As excerpted from BehanceNet, this future Vespa scooter design is created by combining past traditions and future innovations without forgetting the values of originallity as well as reinterpretated of globally thinking without time limit. Vespa La Speciale is a two-wheeled vehicle designed to target young people. That is why this scooter concept was developed as an electric-powered vehicle to support the needs of the new generation.
The Vespa La Speciale Concept is electric powered, and therefore the engine size can be reduced, followed by under-saddle storage space. (Picture from: Behance.net)
According to the designers, the concept was formally created after having finished observing carefully what the Vespa was in the past, a true legend of the Italian two-wheeler. And finally, they decided to take inspiration from the Vespa 50 Special, a small, compact and versatile vehicle powered by a tiny 50 cc engine. Furthermore, it was also mentioned that this two-wheeler concept combines two sides that have always been faithful to the Vespa brand, namely the scooter's fashions and accessories.
The Vespa La Speciale Concept is is a two-wheeled vehicle designed to target young people. (Picture from: Behance.net)
After the scooter design sketches were completed, the color composition began to fall and at the same time the ideas based on the latest technology also emerged, such as the rear wheel (when the scooter stops) can be detached from the scooter body which can be functioned as a one-wheelers such the Segway. Dodgy, isn't! 
The Vespa La Speciale Concept's 'killing details', take a look at the 'shell wreath' of the cut projector. (Picture from: Behance.net)
Also, because the scooter is electric powered, and therefore the engine size can be reduced, followed by under-saddle storage space, that's the next brilliant design ideas of them.
Not to mention, if you want to talk about the 'killing details', take a look at the 'shell wreath' of the cut projector. Top proposals we've never seen before.

When it's finished, few see their work, few know about it and never been glimpsed by any scooter manufacturers.😭 But what is certain this design concept has spoken along with the increasing number of modern scooters passing by on the streets.

Right now, don't be surprised if you see the ideas of three Italian youngster might be seen on the current production version scooters. Why can this happen? Because this is usually done, with the excuse of 'un-officially design', thus giving the brand owner 'more rights' to implement it arbitrarily. Is it true like that? The answer entirely is up to you. 🙏 Keep in mind, We are not in a judgmental capacity.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BEHANCENET | SCOOTERNET.GR]

The Elektron Truva electric car concept with the power of 1,400 hp

~Another Dream~ Not long ago, the German automotive startup named the Elektron Innovativ Technologien aka Elektron Motors has revealed its electric-powered hypercar named Quasar which is claimed to be able to spew the power up to 2,300 horsepower so it capable to speed up to maximum speed of 450 kilometers per hour.
The Elektron Truva supercar is powered by three electric motors capable of generating power up to 1,400 hp or 1,044 kW. (Picture from: Modifikasi)
And now the German company has announced another new high-performance electric-powered car called the Elektron Truva, where this model will appear as a slightly lower-performance than the Quasar hypercar.

As quoted of Motor1, the Elektron Truva comes as an electric-powered supercar equipped with three electric motors capable of generating power up to 1,400 hp or 1,044 kW. The car also comes with a futuristic and sporty look where there are several color variants that will be available such as green, red, silver, and orange.
The Elektron Truva supercar will be equipped with a battery with a capacity of up to 100 kWh, which of course makes this car capable of traveling long distances. (Picture from: Modifikasi)
The German automaker also revealed that this electric car will be equipped with a battery with a capacity of up to 100 kWh, which of course makes this car capable of traveling long distances. Initial information about the Truva includes an "innovative composite chassis" while dampers are handled by a pushrod suspension system. Perhaps the most appropriate reason to introduce the Truva under the Quasar is the price.
The Elektron Truva supercar will be launched six months after its sibling the Quasar released in 2023. (Picture from: Modifikasi)
The Elektron Motors says that the Truva will start at €600,000! How many? Unlike its sibling, the Elektron Quasar, which stated that only 99 units would be available, unfortunately for the Truva supercar, the German company did not mention how many units it would sell.
Of course those price numbers would changed after the launching of the Truva supercar as the plan six months after the launch of the Quasar hypercar in 2023. Suppose both models are presented to the real world, then the Truva's convertible version is also said would be launched.

We'll hope these all electric-powered savage beasts of Elektron could be realized and shown off as the plan. Now on, nothing could be done except we'll wait and see.😉 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ID.MOTOR1 | CARSSCOOPS ]

Urban electric scooter concept with a modular body

~Contemporer Concept~  It's been a long time, we don't write the content that talks about the scooters. And now it feels like it's time for us to re-present something about today's scooter designs (although only in terms of ideas and concepts) related to current trends. The following is one of the scooter concepts (here's no. 2 of 3 concepts) that we have prepared where the whole design are inspired by the Italian scooter legend, Piaggio Vespa.
The Motivo (in scaled model) is such a unique shaped electric-powered scooter concept designed by Tai Chiem back in 2009. (Picture from: Coroflot.com)
The following concept scooter is called the Movito, which we first saw while surfing the Internet some time ago, and interestingly it was created with an unusual design and somewhat different from the others on the market.
The Motivo (in scaled model) has a sexy design appeals to hip and trendy young adults, making a striking statement wherever it goes with its sophistocated styling and two toned colours. (Picture from: Coroflot.com)
The Movito is an eco-friendly electric scooter that recently took top honors in NASA’s Create the future Design Contest back in the 2009. This unique shaped futuristic scooter concept designed by Tai Chiem. The architecture of the scooter concept is completely overhauled allowing for a fresh and innovative design approach. Movito expresses lightness and movement in an elegant form.
The Motivo is took top honors in NASA’s Create the future Design Contest back in the 2009. (Picture from: Coroflot.com)
How not, the fresh futuristic impression of the concept vehicle can be captured from its design character which generally displays a rounded shape with some parts that look tapered, besides that it also applies the hubless wheel features in front, that means the wheel is not centered and spinning on an axis, but rather caught from its bottom side of a rolling rigid fixed part, that goes to the scooter’s direction fork.
The Motivo (in scaled model) is intended for urban use and come complete with a GPS, touch screen interface and helmet storage. (Picture from: Coroflot.com)
According to the designer, the innovative scooter concepts are intended for urban use and come complete with a GPS, touch screen interface and helmet storage. It's sexy design appeals to hip and trendy young adults, making a striking statement wherever it goes with its sophistocated styling and two toned colours.
The Motivo consists of two modular parts, ie an upper scooter chassis, and a base that provides propulsion via an electric motor and rechargeable batteries . (Picture from: Coroflot.com)
The Movito consists of two modular parts, ie an upper scooter chassis, and a base that provides propulsion via an electric motor and rechargeable batteries. The use of an in-wheel motor allows the scooter’s chassis to be slim, smoothly sculpted, and exceptionally lightweight.
The Motivo is designed as a self-contained unit, two bases also can be detached and aligned in parallel to create a two-seater vehicle. (Picture from: Coroflot.com)
Since the vehicle’s propulsion system is designed as a self-contained unit, two bases can be detached and aligned in parallel to create a two-seater vehicle resembled like a carriage without a horse. No wonder if the Movito called a classy and sexy, appealing to free spirited individuals.
